Please, talk to your middle schoolers!

My daughter is in 7th grade here in Gainesville. This was her first full year in middle school. My eyes have been opened wide this year!It started towards the beginning of the year when one of my daughter's teachers broached the subject of drugs with her class. She let everyone know that drug dogs had to be brought in last year to search lockers because of the drug issues.Fast forward a bit to January. I found out about an incident that happened at a local high school between a boy and a girl…See More

Maranda replied to Stacy Fournier's discussion When did your child stop napping?

Purchasing Eye Glasses

I'm needing to get my 8yo son in to the eye doctor.  I've read the recent recommendations in an earlier post.  However, has anyone purchased glasses through a local eye doctor?  My husband went to someone about a year ago and the exam went ok, but when it came time to purchase glasses, it seemed like we were talking $300+ (after our discount) for anything that he liked and that would fit, and there weren't very many styles that fit that criteria at all. So...I'm trying to plan ahead because I…See More

My 8 year old son will be attending Chiles this up coming school year.  I babysit for a family across town on Tuesdays and their daughter gets out of school at the same time as my son.  I would like to continue babysitting for them, so I'm wondering about after school options for my son on Tuesdays.  Does anyone know if the aftercare programs provided through the schools will let you do one day a week?  I had also wondered about the possibility of him going home with someone that would be…See More
